Rosenberg Castle is a college-level history course you can take in two hours! Well, I'm slow. I took four hours. So much to see. Centuries of Danish history in one building. The castle is not used as such any longer, but has become a living...More
If you have some extra time, the Rosenborg Castle is worth a visit. Genuine rooms with wall and celing paintings, giving you a look into the history of kings and queens.
Visit the park outside as well.
Rosenborg Slot (castle) was built by Christian IV as a summer residence in the early 1600’s in the Dutch Renaissance style. I found it over-opulent, dark, and stuffy. The stuffiness is likely due to the houseful of tourists and 500 years of accumulated ‘’stuff’’. Every...More
The summer palace was built by Christian IV in the 17th century. In the Great Hall the thrones are guarded by three silver lions, and the tapestries on the walls represent scenes from battles between Denmark and Sweden. The crown jewels and royal crowns are...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding
neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
Hi Sharon. The tickets are timed for a fifteen minute window of entry. If you miss it they are not obliged to let you in. Sometimes so busy they may not be able to. I think it will depend on the business at the time and... More
Hi Sharon. The tickets are timed for a fifteen minute window of entry. If you miss it they are not obliged to let you in. Sometimes so busy they may not be able to. I think it will depend on the business at the time and kindness of the entry team.
